First Reproducible Example: Clang code model can not find a definition for "uint8_t" which is defined in <stdint.h>. The error occurs on OS X (10.8, 10.9, 10.10) but NOT linux or Windows.

#include <stdint.h>

 void Test()
  uint8_t uINT8 = 200; <== THIS LINE will not complete. Shows "uint8_t" as unknown.
  int8_t foo = 10;
  unsigned char fooUChar = 10;

We have a templated class that we create some typedef's for and this issue just kills the autocompletion with those classes.

 template<typename T>
class Foo

    void setValue(T v) { __foo = v; }
    T __foo;

typedef Foo<uint8_t> UInt8Foo_t;

void FooTest()
  UInt8Foo_t foo;
  foo.setValue(1.0); <==== This line will not auto complete or color correctly.
